Great game, but still not GTA

Ever since I bought my PS4, I have been yearning for a GTA release. When I first heard of Watch Dogs, I felt jubilant about the prospect of getting my hands on a valiant replacement. Unfortunately, it does not live up to the greatness of GTA. Don't get me wrong, it has its moments, but a GTA replacement, it certainly is not. GRAPHICS The cityscape is absolutely beautiful and authentic. You may be excused for thinking that you are browsing Chicago on Google Street View. The detail in buildings, roads and side walks is impeccable. STORYLINE: Without explaining the storyline, I will simply state that it is very engaging and I have found myself watching each and every cut scene without wanting to press the skip button (if there even is such an option. It is very unusual for me not to have at least tried to skip one scene). CARS, GUNS, BOATS, TRAINS AND ACTION There are a few nice cars in the game, none are real brand name cars, but you the game is not short of variety. When you walk into a car park, it is unlikely that you will see more than one of the same type of car. The driving aspect is good, but since it is the same developers who created Driver: San Francisco, I really expected better handling and some good broad side cornering. However, the physics of collisions is spectacularly done as well as the post collision damage. A big plus, is the ability to ride trains and hack it, causing it to either stop or go. There are plenty of guns to choose from and the player is not limited to carrying only a set number of weapons. It is my second day playing and I am already carrying 2 sniper rifles, 5 assault rifles, 5 semi-auto pistols and hand guns, 3 different types of grenades and some other game specific signal jamming tools. Shooting action feels and plays very much like Red Dead Redemption (for those who have played it), the aiming cursor is a very small circle (almost more like a dot) and the shooting gets very intense quickly as the enemies call for reinforcements. Enemy artificial intelligence is very good, they take good advantage of their numbers by circling and flanking the player. The biggest draw back for me, which may be a positive for someone else, is that when you do missions, it will be almost impossible to shoot your way through unless you have killed off a few guards first using exploding electrical boxes and drain pipes. Hence, a large portion of gameplay is spent hacking camera after camera and very little is actually being done with the player himself. This is a draw back for me, because what I am doing in the game feels too disengaged from my player and the player basically becomes untouchable as he sits 50-70 meters away from where everything is happening. EXPLORATION The maps are huge. There are so many places to drive that you sometimes find yourself lost in the city, in a cul de sac, struggling to find your way back to where you want to go. This is a big positive because it feels pretty much like getting lost in real life while driving in a new city. You can cross rivers, railway tracks, bridges, private dwellings, and drive through under-roof public buildings. The one major negative I have in respect of exploration is when it is being done on foot. There are very few buildings that you can enter and it is hard to tell which doors can open, and which can't. Simply put, there is not even close to the same amount of random on-foot exploring and recreational activities that you will find in GTA. SUMMARY It is currently the only PS4 game that can fill the shoes of GTA, but it does not replace the need for a new GTA release on PS4. It is still one of the best, if not the best PS4 game.
